Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Facts
Household IAQ Threats
Symptoms of Poor IAQ
Major Factors Causing Poor Indoor Air Quality
Sick Building Syndrome-is used to describe a situation in which the occupants of a building experience acute health- or comfort-related effects that seem to be linked directly to the time spent in the building.
Combustion Products– Combustion (burning) by-products are gases and small particles. They are created by incompletely burned fuels such as oil, gas, kerosene, wood, coal and propane. The type and amount of combustion by-product produced depends on the type of fuel and the combustion appliance.
Biological Pollutants– Biological pollutants can travel through the air and are often invisible. Some common indoor biological pollutants are: Animal Dander (minute scales from hair, feathers, or skin) Dust Mite and Cockroach parts. Infectious agents (bacteria or viruses)
Violate Organics– Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are chemicals used in most products that can easily evaporate into the air we breathe and affect indoor air quality.
Heavy Metals– The heavy metals cadmium, lead and mercury are common air pollutants, being emitted mainly as a result of various industrial activities. Although the atmospheric levels are low, they contribute to the deposition and build-up in soils.
Environmental Tobacco Smoke– Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS), or secondhand smoke, is a mix of chemicals that results from burning tobacco (cigarettes, cigars, pipes) and from exhaled smoke.
Known Health Conditions Associated with poor IAQ Factors
- Respiratory Illnesses such as Asthma
- Heart Disease
- Other Long-term Medical conditions

Filtration Tips to Prevent Poor Air Quality
Increasing the amount of fresh air brought inside can reduce indoor pollutants. Bathroom & Kitchens fans that vent to the outdoors are also great sources for ventilation.
>>>Indoor air can be 2-5x more polluted than outdoor fresh air
Filters are your 1st line of defense from indoor air pollution.
Your central heat & air systems filters are your first source at cleaning the air & removing pollutants inside your home or office. Proper maintenance of these filters ensures cleaner air, while also help the hvac system operate as intended.
>>>Not only does your filter give you cleaner fresher air, but dirt build up and neglect are one of the leading causes of hvac system failure
>>>Filters protect your ac system from debris that could damage your ac system, but they also protect your health. The EPA states that indoor air pollutant levels are often 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor air pollutant levels.
>>>Higher rated filters have more surface area per square inch, allowing them to catch more debris for a longer filter life. They are also more likely to restrict air flow. Restricting the airflow in your ac system causes they system to work harder, possibly leading to breakdowns and high energy bills.
>>>Try to change your filter every month by connecting it to a date or task like the 1st of each month, the day you receive your electric bill, or pay your electric bill or rent/mortgage, or even set a reminder in your smartphone.
The ideal humidity inside a home or office is between 30% & 50%. Too much moisture make for an ideal environment for bacterial growth, thus threatening Indoor Air Quality.
>>>Some mold can grow when the relative humidity level is above 50%. Most molds like relative humidity above 60-70%.
